Haga is one of the oldest neighbourhoods in Gothenburg but in the same time an exciting shopping area.
The pedestrian street Haga Nygata is lined with well-preserved wooden houses, many in characteristic county-governor style. Today they house plenty of trendy independent shops and cafés.
The area dates back to 1648 and following investment by the Swedish government and the sympathetic restoration of historic buildings in the 1980s.
Haga is a must-visit destination which is still full of centuries-old delights and offers a peaceful atmosphere, despite being close to the rest of the city.
After shopping and dining, take the time to relax at Hagabadet, a stunning spa and wellness centre which first opened in 1876. Its main swimming pool boasts an ornate mural and spectacular art nouveau ceiling frescoes, which differentiate the spa from its modern competitors.
Take an invigorating dip in the pool, refresh with a cold bucket shower and indulge in a treatment for the ultimate pampering.
